EIC 360 RROD's

I have to admit that I had gotten pretty arrogant about the fact that my original Xbox 360 had yet to get the Red Ring of Death.  Over the years its' handled every game with aplomb and while the unit was loud it always played everything I threw at it.  That all changed today when my Xbox 360 (pictured below) decided to throw the dreaded three rings.  I'm still in shock over this as while not quite unexpected the RROD was something that happened to other people (Dan is on his third Xbox 360, Ben his second).  It was a review unit provided by Microsoft so while I'm not out any money I'm frustrated that I won't get the chance to spend time with the Lost Planet 2 demo or with Shadow Complex this week.
